Webinar Save Our Wild Places

Conservation funding opportunities in Australia

Australia is a natural gem. Our land and sea are rich in biodiversity and culture, from the tropical savanna of the top end, wide open spaces of the Central Desert to the tall forests and alpine heath of the south.

But our environment is under increasing pressure on many fronts. Land clearing, development, invasive species and grazing impact our landscape all of which make it less resilient to the effects of climate change.

The good news is, philanthropy is making a difference and there are many more impactful and transformative funding opportunities.


Hear from Dr Fiona Leverington and Dr James Fitzsimons, lead authors of Nationally Significant Conservation Issues and Investment Opportunities in Australia, a report for the Wyss Foundation’s Campaign for Nature.

Professor Brendan Wintle will set the global context by outlining the implications for Australia of recently released UN-backed report on the threat of mass species extinction around the world.

Introduced by Craig Connelly, CEO of the Ian Potter Foundation

Join us for a lunchtime webinar to explore the critical role you can play.

Date: Tuesday 20 August
Time: 12 noon to 1.30pm
Location: via Zoom
RSVP: Vikki Foord
